1. Cutler, Hanie and Basanez will probably be the depth chart again
And not to worry, Bears fans, because Florida's Tim Tebow did nothing but hurt his stock dramatically during the week and doesn't look like a legitimate NFL signal caller, so there is no way he's on general manager Jerry Angelo's radar.
2. This team can never have too many linebackers on the roster
Weatherspoon and Washington both had big weeks at the Senior Bowl and may come off the board in Round 1, so a lesser-heralded LB like Donald Butler of Washington would be a more realistic expectation.
3. Getting the running game going is the primary focus on offense
4. Free safety position still a difficult one to fill comfortably
The only safety spotted spending significant time with Bears officials at the Senior Bowl was Harry Coleman of LSU, and considering he lined up at linebacker his last season in Baton Rouge, no way can he play free safety on Sunday.
5. A wild-card entry into the tight end derby might happen again
